    Airbags

    As some of you know, i do race with my GT3. Lately a bad incident happen to me and the airbags come out.

    As i had the six point  belt (Harness) on,  the airbags couldn't really do their job cause with the six point belt you really don't move from the seats or really a little. So what happen, the airbags from my door side and the dashboard airbags, broke the door window, the front window and the dashboard.

    It's quind of Smiley when it happens and then  a really bad smell stay in the car. Thanks god i had the helmet on, otherwise the explosion of the Airbags could have made me deaf.

    Also, thanks to Porsche for how they bilt  their car cause these parts can be changed. I heard that on other cars, when the airbags come out, the car is gog for the cimetery. 

    I asked my car dealer for a new dashboard and it just gave me the SmileySmiley  when he told me price : 4'635 €.  Security has no price for me but man........ouch.

    So my question is: Does any GT3 owner or P car driver, know if the airbags can be switch off?

    if yes is it easy to do and will the car been able to start after having turned the airbags off?

     Well at least you are safe of course.  Out of interest what is the exact damage?  I presume the dashboard itself is not the problem (although leather would add to this cost) but the labour correct?  Why not look somewhere to provide the part?

    As for the windows, at least 2 birds with 1 stone since you need to strip down the doors anyway.

    Jag007. the dashboard is somehow a problem cause it has to be replaced. but you right i could see to provide it. i'll do some calls. Thanks.

     No problem. Haven 't dealt personally with them (yet) though..

    Good luck with the reparations!

     


    Re: Airbags

    I have dealt with Gert of Carnewal a couple of times in the past. He's always been very helpful and reliable. (Don't have any affiliation with him). Based on my experiences, I can only recommend him.
